much of the ice IS NOT floating in the oceans.. your comparing ICE in a glass to that of the oceans? That is quite the stretch.. Greenland is
ICE on LAND..not the ocean.. with bedrock below..
Correct, but the Greenland ice sheet is not the majority of ice in the Arctic. More ice is indeed floating on the water and thusly will not raise seal
level... just like ice cubes in a glass of water.
and the oceans HAVE ALREADY risen approx. 3inches in the past years...
Can I get a source for this info?
and yes, microscopic changes in the atmosphere are devastating to the natural cycle...
A source for this would be nice as well.
.. b/c now, the debate is over.. Man Made global warming is dead on accurate and real..
Are you closing the thread?
The debate is very much alive. Any scientific concept is always subject to debate. I could debate that water is a solid above 0°C (I'd lose of
course) if I so chose. It would be up to me to provide evidence of my position, and then up to scientists and thinkers world over to either accept or
reject my evidence and hypothesis. In short, once you declare that the debate is over and my theory is a fact, you have violated the sanctity of all
scientific research and exposed yourself as presenting an unscientific opinion.
do you think we live in an open space where we can spue out as much pollutants and Co2 as we want?? Look at L.A. and all the smog? there's
some of your proof right there...
Proof? Pollution levels are dropping in LA:
Los Angeles ranked as the most polluted city in the nation for all categories in the report, even though LA’s pollution levels have

While there is no doubt that we cannot simply throw trash into space and watch it disappear, that also implies that all of the carbon present today
has been present since prehistoric times. The same goes for the sulfur, the nitrogen in the nitrates, and even water! To date, has anyone tried
cleaning the air? If so, they must have not had much success, because I have heard nothing of it. On the other hand, someone has suggested cleaning
CO2 from the air, and even introduced a device to do it:
Scientists at Columbia University are developing a carbon dioxide (CO2) scrubber device that removes one ton of CO2 from the air every day.
While some see the scrubber as an efficient and economical way to reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide, many environmentalists are opposing the
technology because it allows people to use fossil fuels and emit carbon in the first place.

I covered this on the an ATS thread a while back, which you can find at www.abovetopsecret.com...
So if we are not trying
to clean the mess, yet are expected to believe the mess in question is going to cause the devastation of the planet, I see a contradiction. I'm sorry
if you do not.
I am assuming from your post that you live in the LA area. This may seem hard to believe, but the Southern California area is a tiny minuscule portion
of the planet. If you had some spots on your carpet, would you a) clean the spots, or b) demand that everyone in your neighborhood buy spot-resistant
I'd clean the spots first. But, that's just me...
